Gather the family for a fun day outdoors at McKinney Falls State Park on Saturday, June 6. You can step back in time as you spend the day with the buffalo soldiers, Native Americans and early cowboys at the Outdoor Heritage Day and Family Festival from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Enjoy free, family-friendly activities with Texas Parks and Wildlife. You can try to beat the soldiers in a game of old baseball, learn to use a compass, track animals and go on a guided bike tour.
